Martha
Martha is 49 years old and widowed. She has 3 children, and they live in their own house located in the district of Pichari. Martha is a very hard-working woman who has done agricultural work since she was very young; she learned this work from her parents. One year ago, she left this profession to dedicate herself to caring for children in a "wawa wasi" (child care center) in her community. This work is part of a government program which provides care for the benefit of people who have babies and cannot normally work because they do not have anyone to care for their small children. Thus, Martha provides her services caring for babies, because she is very patient and dedicated to them. She feels happy doing this work, which in turn allows her to earn a salary so she can cover her household expenses. In the near future, she would like to open a grocery store. This is her second loan with MFP, and Martha once again pledges to make her payments on time.

This is her second loan, and she stands by her commitment to make her payments on time. Martha is happy to belong to her communal bank, because all of the members are punctual. With the 1,500 Peruvian new soles, she will buy materials to help care for children in the child care center.

Martha de 49 años de edad, viuda, tiene 3 hijos, ellos viven en su casa propia ubicada en el distrito de Pichari. Martha es una mujer muy trabajadora que desde muy joven viene realizando labores agrícolas, las cuales le enseñaron sus padres. Hace un año atrás dejo este oficio para dedicarse al cuidado de niños en un wawa wasi (guardería) de su comunidad, este trabajo pertenece a un programa del gobierno que brinda atención a personas que tienen bebes y no pueden laborar normalmente porque no tienen quien atienda a sus pequeños hijos. Así, Martha presta sus servicios en el cuidado de bebes, porque tiene mucha paciencia y dedicación a ellos. Se siente feliz realizando este trabajo que a cambio le permite alcanzar un sueldo para poder solventar los gastos de la casa. En un futuro próximo ella desea abrir una tienda de abarrotes. Este es su segundo crédito con MFP, por el que ella ratifica su compromiso el de cancelar puntualmente el pago de sus cuotas. Con los 1,500 nuevos soles comprará materiales educativos para enseñarles a los niños que cuida en su guardería.
